2 dead in Chicago Legionnaires’ disease outbreak
CHICAGO – Two people have died after contracting Legionnaires’ disease in an outbreak linked to a downtown hotel this summer, Chicago Department of Public Health officials said Monday.
The two were among eight people who came down with the disease after staying in the JW Marriott in July and this month.
None of the eight who contracted the disease live in, or are being treated, in the Chicago area. City officials would not provide any further information about them, citing privacy laws. The conditions of the six surviving people who caught the disease are not known.
